JINYA Ramen Bar opens in Denver on Monday, August 17.

Located at 1710 Wynkoop St., across from Denver’s Union Station, the new 4,000-square-foot restaurant is the first of nine JINYA locations that are set to open in Colorado over the next five years. In addition to the new LoDo location, Franchisees Brad Smith and Tony Avila are preparing to bring JINYA’s perfectly balanced bowls to Boulder, Colorado Springs, Denver and Fort Collins.

“We are honored and excited to have the opportunity to bring JINYA to Colorado, and we can’t wait to start serving everyone in Denver,” Avila said. “There’s no better place for JINYA to make its debut than in the bustling LoDo neighborhood, across from Union Station, the transportation hub for The Mile High City. JINYA’s authentic, approachable take on Japanese cuisine and the meticulous attention that goes into every bowl is unlike anything else in Denver, so we know it’s going to be a very welcome addition to the dining and entertainment landscape in the area. We have hired 60 incredible local team members and we are all looking forward to becoming an integral part of the community.”

At JINYA, the health and safety of its guests and team members is its top priority. In addition to adhering to all federal, state and local guidelines, JINYA has implemented enhanced sanitation standards and processes.

Denver’s first JINYA Ramen Bar will be open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. This will mark the first JINYA Ramen Bar in Colorado and 35th systemwide
